Run the command chkdsk in read only mode on the all drive. If any drive found an error in windows file system then took the backup of drive and run the command chkdsk /f/r to resolved the issue.

If you are not find an error in windows file system on any drive, then you can run hardware diagnostic tool to find the issue.

My understanding is the 55 error code should specify which drive has the errors - and that the fact that it doesn't may mean other problems ????

if you run
chkntfs x:  it will tell you if the drive is dirty if so then run chkdsk /f on that drive.  You should also check for more disk errors in the event logs.

Well I'm pleased to advsie that after checking the logs for 24 hours the SBS2008 server is no longer getting this error message.

However the SBS2008 backup is now failing with this message :

The backup failed on a volume containing system data.

Any ideas ?
